Samsung has finally unveiled the Note 8, successor to the notoriously-explodable Note 7. We've already taken a look at its specs, pricing and Australian availability, but how does it stack up against Apple's iPhone 7 Plus? Is it better? Worse? Prettier? Faster? More powerful? Let's take a good, hard look.

If you've dropped a few extra hundred dollars on the iPhone 7 Plus and its fancy dual-camera, then you'll want to be sure of getting your money's worth. That means finding all of the right camera apps that can actually take advantage of the new hardware. With that in mind, here are the best apps we've seen that have been upgraded to make the most of the bigger iPhone's killer feature.

Some of the prettiest photos you'll see this year will probably be taken with the iPhone 7 Plus. It has a portrait mode, finally made available to the public yesterday via the iOS 10.1 software update, that automatically applies a gorgeous blur behind the subject of your photo. (This is called "bokeh" in photo nerd parlance.) Babies look cuter, newlyweds happier and pooches poochier with portrait mode.

At a glance, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might both be confused for their predecessors, the 6s and 6s Plus. It's deceptive. The iPhone 7 is perhaps the most drastic revision of the phone since it was first released nearly a decade ago. It's not just the missing headphone jack. There are several other big ideas, including a new dual camera system (on the 7 Plus), a new touch sensor home button, and mercifully, newly added water resistance. These are substantial changes, and they hint at what we can expect from the future of Apple phones.

Apple's newest iPhone is here, and you've got just a few short hours to figure out which one is the absolute best deal. Although Apple didn't change up design much, the iPhone 7 and its larger 7 Plus sibling have more points of contrast than just size this time around.

Apple has a new iPhone. It's more powerful than ever -- the most powerful phone ever. It has longer battery life, and the larger 7 Plus has a unique dual-lens camera. It has no headphone jack. It's waterproof and dust proof. The home button is brand new. And it runs Apple's brand new iOS 10 operating system. Here's everything you need to know.

I'll admit it. I'm a little annoyed with the new iPhone 7. No, no, it's not the headphone jack (there are plenty of ways to deal with that), I'm annoyed because if I want Apple's sick dual-lens camera, I'm going to have to buy the bigger iPhone.

Apple spent a lot of time today explaining that the iPhone 7 is the most "refined" iteration yet. Which is just a fancy way of saying that this phone's design is going to look very similar to last year's phone. Aside from a slightly different finish for the jet black model (glossy!) and some redesigned antenna lines, and that apocalyptic loss of a headphone jack, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus look very similar to their predecessors.

For nearly a decade, the iPhone has been the gold standard of mobile photography. No other company has come close to making a phone camera as consistently great as the iPhone's. Now, Apple has once again established its dominance with the iPhone 7's new camera.
